My fellow adventurers,
in everybody's life there is a question that will pop up sooner or later: "Am I an adventurer or am I a hero?". I can not answer this question for you - you need to decide this for yourself. Should you decide to become a hero, read on.
Recently I received a message about a demon queen, a vile beast that dwells within the Menechtarum desert, scheming her evil machinations that threaten all we stand for. There was no decision to be made - not fighting this monstrosity was no option.
I put out the word, and my call was answered by two companion that I call friends now: Mazal, a dwarven cleric with a desire to heal, a kind spirit who mends our wounds in body and spirit. She has pulled both me and Ed back from the brink of the void when all hope seemed lost.
Ah yes, Edih, called Ed. Also a person of the smaller persuasion, this halfling monk was harsh, nearly rude the first time I met him. Rage and unrestrained seemed to sizzle in his mind, but this is no random destruction: His whole being is consumed by the desire to right the world, to pursue those who do evil and plant his fist in whatever ghastly faces he could find, over and over again until the land would be cleansed and pure.
But of course there is one person more: Me, Daerl. I am a wizard of certain talent, if I may say so myself, and the way I unleash the elemental forces themselves to bring destruction to our foes has always been a welcome addition to Eds zero tolerance policy.
So we fought together. Our many battles are a tale for another day, it is the end of the journey that brings me here. You see, we worked well together, but we are only three people. We have traversed the desert and collected items of power that would allow us to confront the demon queen herself when we had a revelation of weakness: This demon was too much for just three warriors. We called for more, asking for help, trying to convince the population that this was the right thing to do... few answers, nearly none.
It seems that there are no heroes in Menechtarum, only mercenaries and random murderers who call themselves adventurers as a joke. This beast must be dealt with, and it must be dealt with swiftly.
Therefore I issue this challenge to you all: If there is a man among you who does not fear death and damnation, who is prepared to take stance against evil, to fight until his very last breath, knowing very well that he might fall and all might have been in vain, join us on our quest. We will raid the demon queen's lair tomorrow, on sunday, at 8pm (UTC+1). But beware: Should your talents be found lacking or should you surpass us in leaps and bounds, your services shall not be required (about level 10 - 15 only, please).
tl;dr / your roleplay sucks: Demon queen raid on sunday 8pm UTC+1. PUGs don't fill, so maybe this way will work. We're a level 13 wizard, level 13 cleric, level 12 monk. Level 10 - 15 accepted.
